Abstract

"Automobiles of today have been so constructed that greater speeds under safer conditions now exist. One of the improvements has been the low pressure tire. These tires carrying less pressure necessitates a casing of greater volume. This has created a tire of greater thickness in the axial direction but at the same time has decreased the diameter. Because of these innovations in present-day tires the author believes the wheel assembly (tire, tube, wheel, and brake drum) should be considered as a rotating cylinder not as a rotating disk. This being the case, the condition of dynamic unbalance is more critical. This investigation deals with the application of a balancing head to be attached permanently to a wheel assembly to determine the feasibility of dynamic balancing of the unit under operating conditions"--Preface, page iii.
